Do you mind if I don't shake hands? I've tried to avoid touching lately. I learned that in the mental hospital. People in there touch each other all the time. Maybe they want to check if they really exist.

after corrado cattani is murdered maffia think they have won but they are wrong. Corrado's last girlfriend judge Silvia conti and ex policeman Davide licata won't let them.
The Battle goes on
this is the first episode without Michele Placido as the charismatic investigator and when this series first came out people were missing him,but without him this still is an excellent tvmovie
vittorio mezzogiornio is our new hero an italien ex cop living in new york and then going back to sicily to find the man responsible for the slaugter of his unit. Mezzogiorno is a good replacement for Placido not a broken man but a no-nonsense cop
out real hero of course is Patricia millardet as female judge Silvia Conti Corrado's last loved one she promise to find them all that's not only the assasins and those who ordered to kill but also those responsible of the dead of other innocent people
while Mezzogiornio and Millardet are the lead actors most credit goes out for Remo Girone as Tano carridi a brilliant played evil insaint character that in someways doesn't look that evil. Girone plays Tano in a way not even an american actor has played a bad guy.
La piovra 5 is as good as the first 4 parts it's another story of vengeance, betrayal, loyalty, corruption and death
